BLASTERMIND Brothers And Sisters

Famous acting siblings are nothing new (hell, the Redgraves, the Baldwins and the Sheens have made it a family business) but did you realise how many examples there are from the world of science fiction and fantasy?

So your task today is to identify the 10 actors at the top below, then connect each one to the film pictured below that stars their sibling. So we’re looking for answers in the form of A1, 2B, 3C, etc. Get it?

Usual request: Please don’t put answers in the comments section below (though feel free to use it to boast/bemoan how well/badly you’re doing) but the folks on this thread are quite happy for you to post and discuss answers if you follow the golden rule of only posting answers in invisible text (if you don’t know how ask somebody there – they’re very friendly).
